I was very impressed, I have never stayed at a hostel before and I was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, nice size bathroom. The only issue I had was a homeless person fight was going on at 3:15 am but I guess that’s the price you pay for this location. Overall I was bery pleased. Thank -you Samesun!
